As fun as the 2012 regular season was for Missouri fans, the Frank Haith era is not remembered fondly in Columbia, especially in light of what happened after Haith left. A big part of that 2012 season was Mizzou guard Kim English, the most vocal leader of that memorable team.
After a brief stint in the NBA, English and Haith paired up once again, as English joined Haith’s staff after the latter left Missouri for Tulsa following the 2014 season. It was English’s first job as a coach, and surely a good experience with his former coach. But now, it appears English is off for greener pastures. According to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman, he will be joining the staff at the University of Colorado under former Kansas player Tad Boyle:
Colorado coach Tad Boyle has hired Tulsa assistant Kim English (aka The Pride of Notre Dame Prep), source told ESPN. Love the hire.

Boyle has had a very successful run in Boulder, taking the Buffalos to the NCAA Tournament in four of his seven seasons. At just 28 years old, English is considered a rising star in the profession, and this looks like an excellent opportunity for him to continue climbing the coaching ladder.
